A top military source said, “Upon receiving credible information that about 70 terrorists on 40 motorcycles and some on foot were sighted moving towards the Akilibu – Sarkin Pawa Road, near Mangoro Village, the Air Component of Operation Thunder Strike swiftly scrambled an aircraft to intercept and neutralize the terrorists.

“As the aircraft approached the scene, several terrorists were seen running in disarray on sighting the aircraft, abandoning their motorcycles to take cover within nearby bushes. The terrorists were subsequently engaged in different waves with rockets while those fleeing were mopped up with canons decisively”.

He disclosed that feedback from local sources around Mangoro Village disclosed that 17 motorcycles including 34 dead bodies as well as 14 locally fabricated guns belonging to the terrorist were recovered.

“It is unclear if the terrorists were part of those that attacked and killed 8 passengers days ago on board a Kaduna bound train. The military have been commended for their improved swiftness to emergencies but charged to ensure they apprehend those behind the murder of passengers of the Kaduna bound train,” he concluded.
